Forgotten Hope 2 (2007)

Forgotten Hope 2 is a modification for Battlefield 2. In the vein of Project Reality, it introduces new weapons, vehicles, factions and settings - in this case, the Second World War - as well as more realistic gameplay. It is the sequel to the 2003 Battlefield: 1942 modification, Forgotten Hope. Like its predecessor, Forgotten Hope 2 focuses on portraying many different battles of World War II as accurately as possible, paying special attention to the scale of the maps, the belligerent units and the weapons they used historically.

The following weapons appear in the video game Forgotten Hope 2:

Sidearms

Colt M1911A1

The Colt M1911A1 is the main sidearm for the US Army faction. It also appears in the hands of the British and Canadian factions, being a standard sidearm for specialised British units, such as the Commandos or the Paratroopers. Unlike in Battlefield 2, where every class is issued a sidearm, only the non-commissioned officers, support gunners, snipers, pilots, commando units, tank crews and anti-tank infantry carry them in Forgotten Hope 2. Each faction is only issued three magazines, or eighteen rounds in the case of the revolvers, and their short range and stopping power makes them only useful in desperate, close quarter situations.

Colt M1917

The Colt version of the M1917 Revolver is carried as a back-up weapon by US Army support gunners. One of its idle animations has the player character roll the sidearm on his trigger finger, fan the hammer and blow on the barrel in a Wild West-esque way. A chrome-plated version of this weapon used to be featured in the mod, but it was removed at some point during development.

Browning Hi-Power

The Browning Hi-Power is commonly found in rear-echelon German pickup kits on the Western front, such as mounted MG and mortar carriers and anti-tank soldiers. It is also issued to some spawnable machinegunner kits. British commandos in-game used to be issued original P35 Browning Hi-Powers with adjustable sights and detachable stocks resembling Chinese-contract Inglis Hi-Powers, but they were replaced by Colt M1911A1s in the 2.57 update. Nonetheless, these stocked Hi-Powers have found their place in the hands of Finnish pilots in-game, who actually received and put to good use a fair amount of them during the Continuation War in real life.

Webley & Scott No. 3 Mk I

The Webley & Scott No. 3 Mk I flare pistol is issued to New Zealander LRDG Commandos in Operation Hyacinth. It fires a dull flare on a well-lit map and is of no use against enemy soldiers, making it practically useless except as scenery. It is referred to as the No3 Mk1 Very.

MAS Mle 1892

The Mle 1892 revolver is one of three service pistols used by the French Army, mostly issued to snipers and non-commissioned officers. In fact, one of the NCO kits in La Horgne consists of just a Mle 1892 as its main weapon.

Ruby

The Spanish Ruby appears as the most common of the three service pistols issued to the French Army. This one is used by machine gunners, tank crews and anti-tank soldiers.

SACM Mle 1935A

The SACM M1935A is the least common French service pistol, exclusively issued to mortar carriers and NCOs in Flavion. This is historically accurate, as the SACM M1935A only started being issued in late 1939, and not a lot of pistols reached the front lines.

Nagant M1895

The Nagant M1895 is issued to Soviet and Polish non-commissioned officers, tankers and DT machine gunners. One version with a BraMit suppressor is issued to a commando/partisan pick-up kit with a PPS-43 and a satchel charge found in the map Studienka.

Nagant M1895 Revolver - 7.62x38R Nagant. This example was dated 1939 manufacture and was a wartime-issued weapon. Note the angular front sight which was used beginning in the 1930s.

Tokarev TT-33

The Tokarev TT-33 serves as the main sidearm of the Soviet and Polish factions in-game. It is worth noting that the Polish faction in this game is based on the 1st Tadeusz Kościuszko Infantry Division, who fought on the Eastern Front, was under Soviet command and used Soviet weaponry.

Luger P08

The Luger P08 is extensively used by Wehrmacht machine gunners and tank crews in maps set in the early war. However, by 1943 it becomes largely supplemented by the Walther P38 and is very rarely ever seen. It is also used by the Finnish military in some pick-up kits under the designation Parabellum M/23.

Walther P38

The Walther P38 is the main sidearm used by the German faction in-game beginning in 1943, the Luger being slightly more common in early war maps.

Sauer 38H

The Sauer 38H is available as a sidearm for the German faction in some maps, especially those featuring the Fallschirmjäger. Historically, the Sauer 38H was developed in Nazi Germany as a competitor for the Luger P08 and Walther P38, although the Sauer was mostly used by police officers whilst the Luger and Walther typically ended up amongst front-line troops. However, the Luftwaffe eventually took over production of the pistol, so it did see widespread use amongst its paratrooper corps.

Vis wz. 35

The Polish Vis wz. 35 Radom pistol is only used by the German Army in some exclusive pick-up kits, such as anti-tank soldiers, mortar carriers, machinegunners or snipers, on the Eastern front. It is correctly designated FB Pistole 645(p) in-game.

Submachine Guns

M1921 Thompson

The M1921 Thompson has been confirmed as an upcoming weapon for the Vichy French fighting alongside the Allies in Tunisia.

M1928 Thompson

The M1928 Thompson is used by the Commonwealth factions in Greece, Crete and North Africa. Assault units are issued it with a 50-round drum magazine, whilst non-commissioned officers and other commando pick-up kits use 20-round stick magazines. It can fire in either semi or full-automatic mode. Out of all the submachine guns in the game, the Thompsons have the highest recoil.

M1928A1 Thompson

The M1928A1 Thompson is used by the British military in Tunisia and more rarely in Europe, as well as by the US Army in North Africa. There is also an incredibly rare M1928A1 Thompson kit for the Soviet marines at Motovskiy Bay who, according to official unit documents, had exactly 3 Thompsons at the time the battle took place, May 1942. It fires from both a 30-round stick magazine and a 50-round drum magazine, and in semi or full-automatic.

M1A1 Thompson

The M1A1 Thompson is used by the US and Canadian factions. It feeds from a 30-round stick magazine. Like the M1928, it fires in both semi and full-automatic.

M3 "Grease Gun"

On some maps beginning in July 1944, the M3 "Grease Gun" replaces the M1A1 Thompson as the weapon of choice for the US assault kit.

Sten Mk II

The Sten Mk II is used by the British and Canadian factions in France. Regardless of the faction, all Stens in this game are Canadian-made, as noted by the skeleton stock and the markings on the magazine well. However, the original British T-shaped Sten has been confirmed as an upcoming variant.

Sten Mk IIS

The suppressed Sten Mk IIS is issued to Royal Marine commandos in Port-en-Bessin, but it can also be found as an "Easter egg" kit in Gold Beach and Villers-Bocage as a reference to them. It can overheat over prolongued periods of fully-automatic fire. Like the unsupressed Sten, it features the typically Canadian skeleton stock and Long Branch markings.

MAS-38

The MAS-38 was added in the v2.6 update as an incredibly rare weapon for the French. It appears near a static Lorraine 38L in both Flavion and Stonne. This is historically accurate, as the MAS-38 was still very much in testing phase when the Germans invaded and few were made before France fell. Some of the units who did use it in real life it were Lorraine 38L drivers. Additionally, the Germans have access to one MAS-38 in the map Pegasus, aptly designated Maschinenpistole 722(f).

PPD-34

As of v2.6, the PPD-34 is only used by Soviet marine assault units at Motovskiy Bay. According to official documents of the 12th Naval Infantry Brigade, they were all armed with PPD-34s and PPD-40s in 1942, which is when the skirmish took place in real life. It appears with either a 25-round stick magazine or a 73-round drum magazine.

PPD-34/38

The PPD-34/38 was added in the v2.6 update as a very rare pick-up weapon exclusive to the map Operation Mars. Unlike the PPD-34, it always appears with a 73-round drum magazine.

PPD-34/38 with 73-round drum - 7.62x25mm Tokarev. This is a late version, produced in 1940 before the introduction of the PPD-40.

As of v2.6, the PPD-40 is only used by Soviet NCOs on the maps Motovskiy Bay and Operation Mars. One interesting pick-up assault kit can be found on Operation Mars, which includes a PPD-40 and a Finnish puukko knife. It is always fitted with a 71-round drum magazine.

PPSh-41

The PPSh-41 is the standard submachine gun of the Soviet and Polish factions. It can be fired in semi or fully automatic, and can be used with a 35-round stick magazine or a 71-round drum magazine. Unlike every other submachine gun in the mod, the PPSh-41 usually appears as an unlimited weapon, owing to the massive amount of examples that were made and how widely it was issued in real life. The Germans can also use captured examples in rare pick-up kits, designated Maschinenpistole 717(r).

MP40

The MP40 is, rather unsurprisingly, the mainstay submachine gun of the German faction. However, it is much less common in early war maps, being mostly substituted by the MP38. The in-game model always appears with the knob-shaped charging handle commonly attributed to the MP40; however, this charging handle design was only developed in July 1942, with early MP40s having the MP38's hook-shaped handle. Therefore, this specific MP40 model would be slightly anachronistic for some maps.

Beretta M38A

The Beretta M38A appears in two variants in Forgotten Hope 2. The first one, the early version, added in v2.6 and incorrectly referred to as Beretta Modello 38 in-game, features a large compensator and a folding bayonet. It is only issued to Italian African Police (PAI) units on the map Operation Hyacinth, but it can be found as a rare pick-up kit on other maps, namely Giarabub, Keren or Tunis. It can be found with a 10-round (only in "Polizia" kits, which have this submachine gun and a pair of binoculars, and PAI assault kits), 20-round (rare pick-up assault kits in Giarabub and Tunis) or 40-round magazine (PAI NCOs in Hyacinth).

Meanwhile, the later Beretta M38A has a four-groove compensator and no bayonet. It is the Italian Army's standard submachine gun, and it also appears in a few very rare German pick-up kits in areas such as Normandy or the Eastern Front. In reality, the Germans were known for loving the Beretta M38, and they did use it in combat. The M38A and its variants were even adopted by the Wehrmacht late in the war. According to the mod's developers, the Beretta M38A in those German kits is supposed to stand in for the M38/44; this is further reinforced by the fact that it appears as the Maschinenpistole 739(i), the German designation for the M38/44. This version only appears with a 40-round magazine.

Suomi KP/-31

The Suomi KP/-31 is the main submachine gun used by Finland. The basic variant (used by assault units) only appears with a 71-round drum magazine.

Suomi KP/-31 SJR

The Suomi KP/-31 SJR (a variant of the standard KP/-31 with an added compensator made during the war and actually rejected by Lahti himself) is only issued to Finnish NCOs with a 71-round drum magazine, but it also appears in scarce assault pick-up kits with a 50-round "coffin" magazine. The "coffin" magazine was withdrawn from service in 1943 because it was considered too unreliable, hence why it's so rare in Forgotten Hope 2.

Rifles

M1903A1 Springfield

The M1903A1 Springfield rifle is used by US Army engineers and recon units in Sidi Bou Zid. Furthermore, Ranger recon units are issued it during the Normandy landings at Omaha Beach and Pointe du Hoc. This is historically accurate - US Rangers are known to have chosen the M1903A1 Springfield over other weapons in their inventory for certain missions. A unique grenadier kit with an M1903A1 and two different types of rifle grenades can be picked up in Pointe du Hoc. It can be fitted with an M1905 sword bayonet.

M1903A3 Springfield

The M1903A3 Springfield is part of the American pick-up ammunition kit found in most maps in the game, and a unique grenadier kit with an M1903A3 can be picked up in Hürtgen Forest and Omaha Beach and spawned with in the 16p layer of Operation Cobra. It can be fitted with an M1905 sword bayonet regardless of the map.

M1903A4 Springfield

The M1903A4 Springfield with a Model 330 Weaver scope is the sniper rifle used by the US Army faction. Unlike in Battlefield 2, where there is a default sniper class, sniper rifles in Forgotten Hope 2 function as "Easter eggs," as they can be only picked up from odd locations in maps, such as the main base or recently captured spawn points.

M1917 Enfield

As of v2.6, the M1917 Enfield can only be found in Sidi Bou Zid as a pick-up weapon, either in an engineer, an ammunition or a recon kit. It used to be reloaded with just a 5-round stripper clip despite having a 6-round magazine, but this has since v2.6 been fixed. It can be fitted with an M1917 bayonet.

M1 Garand

Unsurprisingly, the M1 Garand makes an appearance as the main service rifle of the US Army faction. Depending on the map it can be fitted with an M1905 sword bayonet or an M1 bayonet and, on most if not all maps, an M7 rifle grenade launcher.

M1 carbine

The M1 carbine is primarily used by US Army engineers, NCOs and mortar carriers (and anti-tank soldiers in co-op mode). It is modelled with the buttstock twin magazine pouch.

Pattern 1914 Enfield No. 3 Mk I* (T)

The earliest model of the M1917 Enfield, the Pattern 1914 Enfield, fitted with an Aldis 1918 scope, appears as the Commonwealth's sniper rifle for maps set in Greece, Crete and North Africa. Captured examples are also used by the Italians as their main sniper rifle.

Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk III*

The Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk III* is the main weapon of Commonwealth forces in Greece, Crete and North Africa. It can be fitted with a Pattern 1907 bayonet and a cup grenade discharger on all maps. It is easily distinguished from the No. 4 Mk I by its stubbier shape, shorter muzzle, and tangent rear sight.

British and Canadian forces fighting in France use the Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk I. It can be fitted with a spike bayonet and, on most maps, the SMLE's proprietary cup grenade launcher. In contrast to the No. 1 Mk III*, it has an aperture rear sight.

Boys Mk I

Commonwealth soldiers in Greece, Crete and North Africa use the Boys Mk I anti-tank rifle as their primary anti-tank weapon, which must be deployed to fire. It also appears in the map Stonne as a rare pick-up weapon for the French, who actually used it in real life.

Lebel Mle 1886-M93

The dated Lebel Mle 1886-M93 is still part of the French military's inventory in 1940, as it was in real life. Nevertheless, it's not a very common weapon, being only issued to grenadiers in Stonne and appearing in pick-up ammunition kits. Interestingly, the German ammunition kits featured in the maps Lébisey, Operation Goodwood and Pegasus all have Lebels, designated Gewehr 301(f).

Mousqueton Berthier Mle 1892/M16

The Berthier Mle 1892/M16 carbine appears as the main service rifle of the French Spahi brigade in La Horgne, and also acts as a secondary rifle for the French in Stonne, used by engineers and NCOs.

Berthier Mle 1907/15-M34

The Berthier Mle 1907/15-M34 - a 7.5x54 mm conversion of the Berthier made prior to the MAS-36 - is only used by the French 1ère DCR in Flavion, the unit which has all the latest equipment in-game.

MAS-36

The MAS-36, originally intended to be the successor to the Lebel and the Berthier, is accurately depicted as being far from that, being exclusively used by the 1ère DCR in Flavion and more rarely by the 6ème GRDI in Stonne as a service rifle. Additionally, it appears as a rare pick-up weapon for the Spahis in La Horgne.

Mosin-Nagant M91/30

The Mosin-Nagant M91/30 is the main weapon of the Soviet and Polish factions in-game. It can be fitted with a bayonet. Interestingly, the game features two different Mosin models - one with the WW2-era round receiver, which is the main model used; and one with an hexagonal receiver indicative of an early pre-1936 production rifle, used by the Soviet marines at Motovskiy Bay and in some pick-up ammunition kits. A unique hexagonal receiver variant equipped with a BraMit suppressor part of a "partisan" kit can be picked up in Studienka.

Mosin-Nagant M91/30 with PU scope

The scoped Mosin-Nagant M91/30 serves as the Soviet, Polish and Finnish factions' sniper rifle, fitted with a PU scope. A unique variant with a hexagonal receiver equipped with a BraMit suppressor can be picked up at Motovskiy Bay. It is worth nothing that the PU-equipped Mosin is totally anachronistic for the Motovskiy Bay map and slightly so for Operation Mars, as those are set in May and November 1942 respectively, and the PU was only introduced for the M91/30 during the summer of 1942. The PE and PEM scopes were much more common back then, although the use of the PU in Operation Mars is not completely incorrect. On a handful of maps, the scoped Mosin-Nagant can be loaded with explosive "PZ" rounds - the Germans and Soviets both developed exploding ammunition to be used in aircraft machine guns with spotting intent, but these rounds were at some point repurposed by sharpshooters of both nations fighting on the Eastern front.

Full-length, Mosin-Nagant M91/30 sniper rifle with Russian PU 3.5x sniper scope (this example is one of the repurposed SVT-40 scopes, 91/30 PU scopes had consistent tube diameter as the mount rings were shorter) and downturned bolt handle - 7.62x54mmR.

Mosin-Nagant M38

The Mosin-Nagant M38 carbine appears as a secondary weapon for the Soviets, especially used by engineers and NCOs. It is the main rifle used by the Soviet 6th Guards Cavalry Division featured in the map Studienka. Unlike its full-size variant, it cannot be fitted with a bayonet.

The Mosin-Nagant M44 carbine appears as the only Mosin variant used by the Soviets in Seelow Heights, fully replacing the M91/30 and M38 variants. It has a usable side-folding bayonet.

Tokarev SVT-40

The Tokarev SVT-40 appears as the Soviet and Polish factions' main semi-automatic rifle. Its real-life evolution is properly depicted in-game - in 1942 it usually appears as a spawnable and unlimited weapon for everyone, by 1943 it becomes a limited weapon, and by 1944 it can only be found as an "Easter egg" pick-up weapon. Interestingly, the Germans at Motovskiy Bay and in Operation Mars (both set in 1942) can use the SVT-40 - the Wehrmacht did issue a large quantity of SVT-40s before they developed their own domestic semi-automatic rifles.

Tokarev AVT-40

The fully-automatic AVT-40 is mostly found as a pick-up weapon for the Soviets. Interestingly enough, Polish NCOs can opt to spawn with it directly in the Lenino map. The weapon can actually overheat and it has a very long cooldown timeout, so as to simulate the real weapon's frequent jams. Like its semi-automatic variant, it can be fitted with a bayonet.

PTRD-41

The PTRD-41 anti-tank rifle mostly appears as a pick-up kit for the Soviet and Polish factions, but it can be spawned with in Operation Mars. It is a single-shot rifle that needs to be deployed to fire.

Mannlicher-Schönauer Y1903/14

The Greek version of the Mannlicher-Schoenauer was added in v2.6 as an extremely rare pick-up weapon only found on the maps Invasion of Crete and Mount Olympus. It is most likely a reference to the Greek soldiers that fought there and/or the Cretan resistance, since the invasion of Crete was the first time the Wehrmacht faced mass resistance from a civilian population.

Karabiner 98k

The Karabiner 98k is the main weapon of the Wehrmacht faction in-game. It can be fitted with an S84/98 III bayonet and, on most maps, a rifle grenade launcher. An interesting difference in models from maps set in early war to maps set in late war is the iron sights - the former models feature pre-war unhooded front sights, whilst the latter ones have wartime hooded front sights, making them more accurate. The unhooded models have lighter-coloured wood in order to make both models distinguishable from one another at first glance. Interestingly, the map Operation Mars (set in late 1942) features both Kar 98k models.

Karabiner 98k with ZF41

The Karabiner 98k can be rarely found fitted with a Zeiss ZF41 1.5x scope as a pick-up kit, mostly in maps set during or after Operation Overlord, but it also appears in some earlier maps, such as Operation Mars. For some odd reason, a bayonet cannot be fitted onto this specific variant.

Karabiner 98k with ZF39

The Karabiner 98k with a Zeiss ZF39 4x scope was added in v2.6 to replace the mostly anachronistic LSR-mounted "dow" scope. It otherwise performs identical, and the unhooded-hooded front sight change is still enforced. Some Karabiner 98k sharpshooter rifles on some Eastern front maps can be loaded with explosive "B-Patrone" rounds, originally intended for aircraft machine guns but later repurposed by German snipers.

Karabiner 98k with "dow" scope

Until v2.6, all Kar 98k sniper rifles used to be fitted with "dow" centre-focus scopes. "dow" was the Nazi manufacturing code for the Czech Optikotechna factory, where the scope portrayed in-game was manufactured. Furthermore, the particular way the scope is mounted onto the rifle is known as a "Long Side Rail," which didn't become all that common until late 1944, so it was seen in an anachronistic setting most of the time. With the addition of the more accurate ZF39-equipped K98k in v2.6, the LSR K98k is now only found in a handful of maps, namely Arad, Brest, Hürtgen Forest, St. Vith and Meuse River. Being a late-war sniper rifle, it is only seen with a hooded front sight.

Gewehr 33/40(t)

The Gewehr 33/40(t) appears in pre-1943 maps featuring the Gebirgsjäger (German mountain troops). In real life, the Gewehr 33/40(t) was based on the Czech vz. 33. During the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, production of these carbines continued until 1942, and they were issued to German soldiers operating in harsh mountainous terrain. Production of the Gewehr 33/40 was ceased in 1942 and converted to produce standard-issue Karabiner 98k rifles.

Steyr VK-98

The VK-98 (VK standing for Volkssturmkarabiner) appears as an "Easter egg" kit in the Seelow Heights map: the weapon in-game is single shot. In real life, the VK-98 (aka VG-5) was a "last-ditch" rifle produced by Steyr for German militia use, early versions from surplus Kar 98 parts with later guns using simplified and crudely-made components. Most known examples do have a functioning magazine, either a normal Kar 98 receiver or later a "blind" magazine without an external floorplate. The idea the VK-98 was single-shot is described by various sources such as modernfirearms.net and Small Arms of the World by W.H.B. Smith, and appears to be based on generalising the traits of the VK-98 from uncommon examples that had no magazine.

Gewehr 41(W)

The successful Walther version of the Gewehr 41 appears in the game as a relatively uncommon weapon for German riflemen in the European theatre of war, especially prior to the full-scale adoption of the Gewehr 43. Depending on the map, it can be either spawnable or a pick-up kit.

Gewehr 43

The Gewehr 43 makes an appearance in maps set post-1943. It is normally issued to NCOs, riflemen and recon units.

FG 42

The late-pattern FG 42 is used by the German Fallschirmjäger in the Purple Heart Lane and Saint-Lô maps, and also appears as an "Easter egg" on other maps. It can be deployed and fired at both semi and full automatic, but the game does not make a distinction between closed bolt (for semi-auto) and open bolt (for full-auto). As can be expected, it has a tremendous amount of horizontal recoil.

Sturmgewehr 44

The Sturmgewehr 44 first appears as an "Easter egg" weapon in maps set in post D-Day France. Beginning in July 1944 and especially on maps set during the Battle of the Bulge, the StG 44 appears as a spawnable weapon for the German faction, and in Seelow Heights it can be used without a limit. It can be fired in both semi and full-automatic.

Gustloff Volkssturmgewehr

The Volkssturmgewehr 1-5 appears as a pickup kit for the Germans in the Seelow Heights map. In reality, the VG 1-5 was designed for the Volkssturm and actually used during the defense of Germany from Allied forces.

Kb ppanc wz. 35

The Kb ppanc wz. 35 was added in v2.6 as Germany's only anti-tank rifle in 1940 France, referred to as Panzerbüchse 35(p). Depending on the map, it can be spawned with or found as a pick-up kit. It also appears on El Alamein as an "Easter egg" kit for the Italians, who bought approximately 800 examples from Germany, accurately designated Fucile Controcarro 35(P).

Mosin-Nagant M/39 "Ukko-Pekka"

The M/39 "Ukko-Pekka" is the service rifle of the Finnish faction. The M/39 had already become established as Finland's only service rifle by mid-1944, which is when the Finnish maps take place in-game.

Shotguns

Winchester Model 1912 "Trench Gun"

The Winchester Model 1912 "Trench Gun" is used by the US Army. Unlike most World War II-era FPS, shotguns are rare in Forgotten Hope 2, as they were in real life. The United States mostly employed them on the Pacific theatre. Thus, the Winchester M12 appears as a rare pick-up kit exclusive to some maps, such as Pointe du Hoc.

M30 Luftwaffe Drilling

The M30 Luftwaffe Drilling appears as a rare pick-up weapon for German pilots, firing two 12 gauge rounds and one extremely powerful 9.3mm shot. There is another special "Easter egg" kit, popularly called the "angry farmer kit" amongst the community, which includes this shotgun along with a pitchfork.

Machine Guns

M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle

The M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle is the main weapon for the US faction support class. It can be either fired from the hip or deployed while prone for more stabilized firing and accuracy. At any rate, since v2.63, it can be set to either 450 rpm or 600 rpm regardless of whether it's deployed or not (before v2.63, 450 rpm was tied to hip-firing and 600 rpm to deployed firing). Amusingly, in the map Ramelle-Neuville, a reference to the climactic battle of Saving Private Ryan, the bipod-less BAR used by PFC Reiben (Edward Burns) in the film has been modelled for the game. This version of the BAR also appears in the map Brest.

Browning M1919A6

The Browning M1919A6 is only used by the US Army in maps set during the Battle of the Bulge. It has to be deployed to fire. It can also be found in stationary machine gun nests.

Bren Mk I(M)

The Inglis-made Bren Mk I(M) is the main weapon for the Commonwealth support gunner class in maps set in the Mediterranean theatre of war. It can be deployed for more stable fire and accuracy, and fired in semi or full-automatic. It also appears mounted in a tripod anti-aircraft stand, and on the Daimler Dingo Mk I and the Universal Carrier. It can be identified as a Canadian Mk I(M) due to its lack of a back grip and metal shoulder strap on the stock and dovetail mount on the left side of the receiver, made specifically to simplify costs after the 1940 Dunkirk incident. Since the British aren't featured in any map set before 1941, the Bren Mk I(M) is not anachronistic. Despite being produced by Canada, Canadian Bren guns were supplied to both the Canadian and the British militaries beginning in 1938, and about 60% of all Bren guns were Canadian by the end of the war, so it's not inaccurate for the British (or even ANZAC forces, since Lithgow started producing the simplified version in 1940) to use it.

Bren Mk II

The Bren Mk II is used by British and Canadian support gunners fighting in France, and is commonly mounted on vehicles such as the Dingo and Universal Carrier.

Bren Mk II - .303 British. Even more simplified wartime production variant: note the lack of the Mk I's expensive stainless steel flash hider, differently-shaped carry handle, non-adjustable bipod legs, and the simplified ladder rear sight without the adjustment drum of the Mk I. The Mk II also has a distinctive lightening hole drilled in the middle of the magazine release catch, though this Mk2 part could end up on other variants as a replacement.

Lewis Gun

The Mk I version of the Lewis Gun, which has to be deployed in the prone position to be fired, is used by the Commonwealth in the very early game, especially by the LRDG, but by the British and Australians as an "Easter egg" kit as well. It is also mounted in machine gun nests and bunkers and on Chevy 30WCT jeeps alongside the Vickers Mk I, and in the hull of LCA (Landing Craft, Assault) transports. The aircraft Lewis Mk II with a 97-round pan magazine is mounted in the tailgunner seat of the Hawker Hardy light bomber.

Degtyaryov DP-28

The Degtyaryov DP-28 is the main weapon of the Soviet, Finnish and Polish machine gunner classes. It can be fired from the hip or from a deployed position for more stability, and in semi-auto - although incorrectly - or full-auto.

Degtyaryov DT

The Degtyaryov DT in its infantry version appears as an "easter egg" machine gun for the Soviet and Finnish factions. It can be fired from the hip or from a deployed position, and in semi - incorrectly - or full-automatic. It is also mounted on fixed defensive positions and on most, if not all, Soviet armoured vehicles.

Degtyaryov DT - 7.62x54mmR. The DT could be dismounted from the tank or armored car and used with a bipod as a light machine gun. In such configuration it was favored by paratroopers.

ZB Vz. 26

The ZB-26 is carried by German soldiers in some Normandy maps, especially in those set in early to mid June. This is historically accurate, as the Wehrmacht were so impressed by the Czech machine gun they adopted it under the designation of MG26(t). It fires in either semi or full-automatic and can be deployed on its bipod.

MG34

The MG34 is carried by German machine gunners in maps set roughly before 1944. It can also be seen mounted on a Lafette tripod with a 1.5x optical sight and in machine gun nests and bunkers. The Lafette is both in fixed positions and can be picked up as a deployable "Easter egg". The MG34 is mounted on virtually all German armoured vehicles as a coaxial and/or turret machine gun. It also appears dual-mounted on an anti-aircraft Zwillingsockel 36 mount.

MG34/41

The MG34/41 (a lighter and shorter variant with a rate of fire of 1200 rounds per minute of which only a few examples were produced) has been confirmed to appear in Forgotten Hope 2, presumably by German Fallschirmjäger fighting in Tunisia.

MG42

The MG42 is used by German machine gunners from 1944 onwards. It has to be deployed to fire. It can be seen mounted in machine gun nests and bunkers, on the Lafette tripod with a 1.5x optical sight, and on the front and back of the SdKfz 251/1 Ausf. D "Hanomag" half-track, in the turret of the SdKfz 234/2 "Puma" armored car and on the turret of the Panther Ausf. A and Ausf. G tanks. The Lafette is both in fixed positions and can be picked up as a deployable "Easter egg".

Breda Modello 30

The Breda Modello 30 is carried by Italian machine gunners. It has to be deployed to fire, and can only fire in full-auto. It used to have two firemodes, but it has been since v2.56 fixed. It is accurately depicted as the worst machine gun in the entire game - it is heavy and cumbersome (can't be fired from the hip), it only has a 20-round capacity, and it takes a whopping 10 seconds to be reloaded due to its impractical fixed magazine.

Lahti-Saloranta M/26

The Lahti-Saloranta M/26 is found as an "Easter egg" weapon for the Finnish faction. It can be fired from the hip or from a deployed position, and can operate in semi or full-automatic. Its rare appearance in-game is indicative of what happened in real life - it used to be Finland's standard light machine gun, but over the course of time Finnish machine gunners found they preferred the DP-28 machine gun. All in all, there were more DP-28s than LS/26s in service by mid-1944.

Launchers

M1 Rifle Grenade Launcher

The M1 Rifle Grenade Launcher can be mounted on the M1903A3 Springfields used by US engineers and grenadiers. Depending on the map, it can fire either anti-tank or Mk 2 hand grenades. Note that Forgotten Hope 2 actually depicts the correct procedure for using a rifle grenade: loading a blank round in the chamber before firing.

M7 Rifle Grenade Launcher

The M7 Rifle Grenade Launcher can be mounted on the M1 Garand. It fires Mk 2 hand grenades on an M1A2 rifle grenade adapter. The game accurately depicts the rifle losing its semi-auto functionality with the launcher attached, with the player character cycling the bolt after every shot both to load a blank and to cock it.

M1A1 Flamethrower

The M1A1 Flamethrower is only found as a pick-up kit for the US faction in a handful of maps, namely Omaha Beach, Pointe du Hoc, Brest, Operation Cobra, Operation Lüttich and Vossenack. It fires a continuous stream of flame that will hurt anyone who gets in its way. However, it will overheat very quickly.

Faustpatrone

As of v2.6, the Faustpatrone or Panzerfaust 30 klein is only available to the Germans on the map Lenino. It is a very light close-range disposable launcher.

Panzerfaust 30

The Panzerfaust 30 is, going off by the numbers, the most common anti-tank weapon used by the German faction. It has the same range as the Faustpatrone, but it is a little more powerful owing to its larger size and warhead. The Finnish also use Panzerfäuste bought from Germany, and the Soviets start using them in their 1945 offensives, as seen on the map Seelow Heights, and as recommended by Georgiy Zhukov himself in real life.

Panzerfaust 60/100

The Panzerfaust 60 is also used by the German faction as an anti-tank weapon, but it is much less common than the Panzerfaust 30, being only found in maps set beginning in mid-to-late 1944. Meanwhile, the Panzerfaust 100 is even rarer, found only as a pick-up kit in maps set beginning in late 1944. As can be deduced, both of them are more powerful and have more range than their previous iterations.

RPzB 54 "Panzerschreck"

The RPzB 54 "Panzerschreck" is seen in many maps as a pick-up weapon for the Germans and Finnish, who actually received many of them from Germany in 1944.

Luftfaust

The Luftfaust, also known as the Fliegerfaust B, is an unguided anti-aircraft launcher only found as a pick-up kit for the Germans in Seelow Heights. Little is known about the Luftfaust, but it is acknowledged that around 80 launchers were trialed by a unit in Saarbrücken, and there is a photograph of three discarded Luftfaust launchers lying in the rubble of the Hotel Adlon during the 1945 Battle of Berlin. So, its use at the Seelow Heights is not too farfetched.

3.7cm Pak 35/36

The 3.7 cm Pak 35/36 is used by the Germans in generally very early-war maps (roughly 1940-1941), either as a fixed mount, a wheeled mount, or mounted on the Sd.Kfz. 251/10 half-track. It can also be used during the landings at Omaha and Gold Beach, albeit fitted with a Stielgranate 41 shaped charge. Additionally, it is used by the Finnish faction.

28/32cm Schweres Wurfgerät 40

The Schweres Wurfgerät 40 is a relatively rare rocket artillery launcher used by the Germans. As fixed artillery, it is very rare, being only found on Ogledow and Vossenack. However, it sees more use mounted upon other vehicles, such as Sd.Kfz. 251/1 II "Stuka zu Fuß" half-tracks or captured Renault UE armoured vehicles.

Hand Grenades

Mk 2 hand grenade

The Mk 2 hand grenade "Pineapple" appears in-game as the US Army's main fragmentation hand grenade. One very interesting thing of note is that the US Army in Sidi Bou Zid is actually issued fully yellow Mk 2 grenades; this is accurate - Mk 2 grenades started being painted green after 1943.

Mk 2 "Pineapple" World War II-made High-Explosive Fragmentation hand grenade (sometimes written Mk II). This example has a WW2-era fuze design as can be seen from the front of the spoon curling over rather than under the hinge at the front: this was changed postwar because the older hinge would sometimes allow the spoon to be pushed far enough forward to release the striker while still attached to the grenade.

No. 73 Grenade

The No. 73 Grenade is very rarely seen as a usable anti-tank grenade in pick-up Commonwealth anti-tank and commando kits in the Mediterranean theatre of war. It has a very short throw distance, but it creates a massive explosion when it hits its target.

Mk-II No. 75 Hawkins Grenade/Mine

The No. 75 "Hawkins" grenade appears as a very rare anti-tank grenade. It is mostly found in uniquely scarce anti-tank kits from both Britain and the US Army. Only on the Mareth Line map is the No. 75 "Hawkins" actually issued to the anti-tank kit. In-game, it functions both as an anti-tank grenade and an anti-tank mine - one can throw it at the ground and any vehicle that drives over it will be destroyed, but it can also be thrown directly at a vehicle to destroy it straight away.

No. 77 Smoke Grenade

The No. 77 Smoke Grenade is the main smoke grenade used by all Commonwealth factions, regardless of the theatre of war. Mimicking its real-life characteristics, it doubles as a smoke grenade and a white phosphorus grenade, damaging anyone caught in its impact radius.

Geballte Ladung

A bundle of six Model 24 Stielhandgranaten, known as the "Geballte Ladung", is only issued to German anti-tank soldiers in 1940 France, but it can also be found in rare pick-up German commando kits in North Africa, and more rarely in post-D-Day France. It rather evidently has a much bigger blast radius than the standard Stielhandgranate.
